Elibian Nights (A Fire Emblem Hack)

Elibian Nights is a fan-made "sequel" to Fire Emblem: The Blazing Sword (released as just "Fire Emblem" in the United States and Europe). The game follows the stories of Blazing Sword's cast between the end of Blazing Sword and the beginning of its Japan-only sequel, Sword of Seals.

The game is centered around "tales," which are like your standard Fire Emblem chapter. The main difference, however, is that each tale is completely independent. The cast of the first tale will not carry over into the second, and the stories, while some do link together (for example, Tales 1, 2, and 3 provide the backdrop for Tale 5's events), the plots are independent of one-another.

After a tale is completed, the player will be transported to the "Tale Select" screen. At this hub, you can select the next tale you wish to play, choose to replay any of the tales you've completed, and view your Achievements. If you're familiar with the XBOX360, you'll recognize the concept of "Achievements." The game features a total of 20 Achievements to unlock! The game will feature a total of 13 scenarios, with 7 in the current release.

What's in this release?

The first release covers Tales 1 - 4, and all of the gaiden tales. Please note that you should keep this save after playing, since all future releases will simply build off of this release. Consider this to be a "baseline" release, and the only further additions will be the implementation of the remaining tales (which will be released on a per-tale basis).

Oh my gosh! Arch, you're now on this forum to, it's like you go everywhere! But you know it's good to spread your hack around considering it's like one of the Fire Emblem hacks out there. Good luck I guess!

Coolboyman April 29th, 2011 3:42 PM

Non Pokemon hacks need more love here. Good job dude.

ArchsageX April 30th, 2011 7:22 AM

I'm glad to see that people are interested my work :).

This branch of the Elibian Nights advertising was created long after the project was first announced (obviously), so I haven't been able to obsessively update it like the other topics. This "update" may not be anything new to anyone who has followed my work in the past, but let's get pokecommunity up to speed.

I've been working on the next three tales for release v4. Here's Tale 3 pt. 2 screenshots.

zealot April 30th, 2011 12:08 PM

Very excellent, I've become quite fond of Fire Emblem hacking. Let's see, is that a female druid animation? Very nice. And the legendary bow is obtainable at some point...

And Erk is a Mage Night/Valkyrie???

ArchsageX April 30th, 2011 3:27 PM

Yes, Erk became a Mage Knight. I wanted more class variety, so Mage Knights, Great Knights, and Halberdiers have entered the Elibian universe.

Oh, I took a look at your username and thought you might enjoy these (screenshots from Tale 7):

zealot April 30th, 2011 6:26 PM

Ahaha! Maybe he won't suck in this game! I assume that you'll be using something similar to the one Blazer is using in TU for the Halberdier?

Alomar May 1st, 2011 2:04 PM

Looks like this will be a great hack to play for all emblem lovers, I've always wanted to work on one of these myself but never got around to it.

I'm a huge medieval fan too so if you want some suggestions for characters I got plenty.

ArchsageX May 2nd, 2011 9:59 AM

@Zealot: The idea is that this tale takes place while Zealot is in his prime. So yeah, definitely no suckage allowed.

Also, the Halberdier animation I use is not the same Blazer uses for TU. I've got the good fortune of using Mage Knight 404's Halberdier, made for his hack A Sacred Dawn.

Poke2011 May 3rd, 2011 2:10 AM

I'm actually a fan of the game Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones and i liked the story and the gameplay but this looks like this hack could even be better than that!

btw will this hack make available the class of Myrrh?

DonMoosavi May 5th, 2011 4:25 PM

Wow excellent! I haven't played Fire Emblem in many years, I look forward to playing this hack!

Although I must admit i was slightly disappointed at first because the second I saw your post here I assumed an epic amalgamation between Pokemon and Fire Emblem...

Either way looks great!

Poster May 6th, 2011 3:10 AM

Inb4 Ninja Caterpie.
Amazing job, I knew that there are still FE hackers out there! I admit that I like your concept, which makes already existing characters blend well with new ones. That way you're not getting bored while playing it and at the same time you have less work to do (obviously, since not 100% of the characters are going to be custom).

I'll be following this closely.

zealot May 6th, 2011 7:09 PM

Good deal then, no sucky Zealot! And you're using MK404's, that one is also pretty good.

ArchsageX May 20th, 2011 3:42 PM

~Just keep workin', just keep workin'.

NTA May 29th, 2011 9:03 PM

A Fire Emblem hack!!
Love the screenshots and the gameplay :D

What was your incentive?

ArchsageX June 6th, 2011 5:55 PM

My incentive is just that's it's a hobby and I enjoy writing and sharing stories.

Anyways, here's one of the hack's more unique features (to the FE series at least): ACHIEVEMENTS.

The hack will feature 20 achievements total (17 with hints visible at the achievement room, 3 hidden).

why is it in UPS format?

can you please make one in IPS format? please?

ArchsageX June 7th, 2011 6:48 AM

The Fire Emblem community has jumped over to the UPS format, which was designed as an improvement to the IPS system for hackers (since IPS wasn't originally made for hacking anyways).

This is a UPS patching tool made by a personal friend of mine. I can't make an IPS patch because the ROM is expanded over 16MB (one of those limitations with IPS patches), and I don't like using stealthpatch's icky and buggy dual-patch system (which is, to my knowledge, the only way for IPS patches to work on files over 16MB). Sorry for all this hacking wonk stuff, but it's hugely beneficial for me to just use the UPS format (heck, it's useful for any hacker, I've got no idea why the archaic IPS is dominant around here). I hope you'll take a moment, download NUPS and then proceed to enjoy the hack :).

ThisOrTheApocalypse June 8th, 2011 2:32 PM

This looks awesome, downloading it as I type this! We seriously need more hacks outside of the Pokemon World.

jvpski3 July 17th, 2011 12:55 PM

Nice. Plan to do a Pokemon hack; since you are pretty good?

I've dabbled in Pokemon hacking before, but I'm probably going to retire after I finish this hack. Life, college, and all the rest are catching up fast!

Anyways, I haven't updated this topic for a while, but I've got a trailer:

The next release (v4.0) is coming soon to a computer near you!

Vittorini July 23rd, 2011 12:55 PM

This is excellent. I would definitely like to see more hacks of Blazing Sword or Sacred Stones. Downloading now!

ButchTheCanadian February 12th, 2012 6:35 PM

This is one of the best fire emblem hack i've ever played!
